November Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

The weather is starting to cool down and the Holiday Season is rapidly approaching. This November newsletter, along with our upcoming Club meeting on Thursday, November 17, marks the end our 2016 “Club meetings year.” Please remember that there will not be a December Club meeting. Instead, we invite all members to come together for our annual Christmas dinner/party scheduled for December 10, 2016.

Christmas Dinner / Party:

This year the event will take place at Hermitage Church of Christ, 4004 Lebanon Pike, Hermitage, TN. Although the address says “Lebanon Pike” the entrance to the Church is off Bonnaspring Rd. near Gabes Electronics. The time will be from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. As in the past, the Club will provide the main dish, one side as well as refreshments and all dinnerware. We ask each Club member to bring a side dish and/or desert dish for all to share. Last year we had more desserts than side dishes so be mindful of what you bring this year – however, it is still potluck. In addition, we will be playing “dirty Santa” (a game where your chosen gift from the tree may be taken by someone else until all gifts are distributed-its fun). Your entry to play is one wrapped gift with a value not to exceed $25.00. If you are planning to attend the party, please try to respond to me with a “yes” by December 5 so we can get an idea of how much food we should purchase. THANKS!

Fun Events:

Our “Coming Home” open track event (October 22) at the Nashville Superspeedway was a tremendous success!! Although a crisp morning, the sun and our club hoodies kept us pleasantly warm. A beautiful day provided us with a sell-out crowd. In fact, we had some participants waiting for a “no show” in order to take their place. This event would not have been as successful without the excellent management and direction of our MCMC Track Team Volunteers. They along with the direction of Jim Chism enabled all participants to enjoy a day of safe high speed driving. Our thanks to all of you that volunteered participated and enjoyed this activity. Our “net proceeds” from this event came to $8707!!!

On October 29 several of us Club members came together to participate in our Fall Cruise. We left the Cars and Coffee site in Franklin at 10:00 a.m. and traveled some beautiful Williamson County country roads. The weather was perfect for the cruise with blue sky and a gentle breeze. After our 40+/- mile drive, we stopped at Garrison Park on the Natchez Trace for some games, food and visiting. Pictures are posted on our facebook page. Looking forward to having our Spring and Fall cruises become a yearly event.

Remember, all it takes to plan an outing, drive or event is an email to Randy Pickens (randyp08@yahoo.com) or me (henryjohs@gmail.com) with (1) where you are going; (2) type of event; (3) time, place and date to meet – we will make sure that all Club members are notified.

Upcoming Events:

As mentioned earlier, the November 17 Club Meeting marks the day of voting for our 2017 – 2019 Board term. Each active and paid member (if you are receiving this email, you are qualified to vote) must vote for a total of nine (9) members. As part of this newsletter, we are providing each of you with a ballot. In addition, Randy and Kevin will have ballots at the November meeting. Those that have agreed to run as an “officer” are noted next to that position. There is one officer position without a name, the VP position. For your vote to count, you must vote for nine (9) board members from the nominees on the ballot.

Since some of you may not be able to attend the Club meeting, it would be helpful if you would complete the ballot attached and email your vote back to Randy Pickens by this Wednesday night. Randy’s email is randyp08@yahoo.com.

Presentation of Gary Alsobrook Award:

As noted last Club meeting, the nominees for the Award were collected and reviewed by your Board at its November Board meeting. The results of the Board selection, based on Club member’s nominees, will be announced at our November 17 meeting.

Should there be other events anyone wishes to post on our webpage, please send dates and information to Jeff Billings at nolesfan86@comcast.net and to our newsletter editor, Jay Arnold at mcmcnewsletter@gmail.com.

All must be in Jay’s in-box no later than the Saturday prior to our monthly Club meeting (or sooner) in order to be inserted in the newsletter.

In addition, we would like to have a picture of all Club member cars, so please send a picture (peg or gif file) to Jeff Billings at nolesfan867@comcast.net for posting on our website.

The newsletter is your “vehicle” to communicate to other Club members what is happening in your world. Please send us any and all articles of interest on events, shows, work in progress, etc. for all club members to enjoy.

Take care and drive safe!!
